Welcome to John Devitt Art

Watercolour Artist based in Coastal Suffolk

About Me

I’ve painted for as long as I can remember . My preferred medium is Watercolour. I use St Petersburg Watercolours and a range of Daler Langton papers. I tend to have two distinctive styles. Firstly a very loose pen & wash approach and a more naive illustrative style. The landscape that I see around me in Coastal Suffolk always inspires me both land and sea.

As well as straightforward  watercolour paintings  I also paint ACEOs - small highly collectible pieces of work, which I’ve been doing since 2013. See below for more about ACEOs.

I teach privately, can arrange demonstrations at art clubs and societies and undertake commissions and house portraiture.

Watercolour paintings are always sold mounted but unframed. The mounts are designed for many standard sized frames sold at many retailers  - the aim being you can simply buy a frame which the painting will fit perfectly into. Each watercolour painting is individually priced.

ACEOs are offered for sale as individual paintings or as triptychs - sets of three and sent in a protective cellophane sleeve. Individual ACEOs are £4.95 and sets are £12.95.

Do remember you are purchasing original art, not a print .

What exactly is an ACEO ?

ACEOs ( Art Cards Editions and Originals ) are pieces of art measuring 3.5 inches x 2.5 inches. They can be created in any medium , indeed many are mixed media. I paint ACEOs in Watercolour with some occasional collage. They are very popular in The USA but are becoming increasingly popular in The UK as people collect them to display in albums or frames . Any internet search will detail their origins. They are a very easy and affordable way of collecting real art ; be it by artist, theme or subject.

Every ACEO I create is signed by me on the front and back and dated.
